Tyra Banks to Return as Host of 'America's Next Top Model'

Tyra Banks, creator of America’s Next Top Model, will return as host when the show begins production on VH1 this summer.

Banks and Ken Mok are executive producers of the show, which ran on UPN and The CW for 22 cycles, with Banks as host.

Rita Ora hosted one season.

“Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize," Mok said
